Corsair has also entered the race of RAM manufacturers who are preparing for the upcoming Intel Alder Lake processors. Corsair has started the preps for launching their new DDR5 RAM which is expected to be available in the market by the end of the year. Corsair has also promised better bandwidth and capacity of the new DDR5 memory sticks than the DDR4.
With the next generation of CPUs, DDR4 RAM stands to be outdated. Corsair is taking a huge step to improve the memory speed and capacity of DDR5.
As reported by PCGamesN, when compared 6400MHz DDR5 to 3200MHz DDR4 RAM modules, it proved the claims of the company true. There is an increase in memory bandwidth from 26GB/s to a much higher frequency of 51GB/s. DDR5 RAM has a base clock speed of 4800MHz but the requirement is for the support of 8400MHz.
The capacity of single stick RAM would be quadrupled. DDR4 RAM had a maximum capacity of 32GB per dual in-line memory module and the new DDR5 would have 128GB per DIMM. The improved bandwidth of DDR5 is going to make better use of the memory bus and at the same time, the massive capacities will allow your PC to handle even more tasks at once which would be beneficial for content creators and streamers.
Due to the approaching release dates of new Intel Alder Lake CPUs, Corsair is currently working on its new DDR5 RAM for the 12th generation of Intel processors. While AMD users have to wait to try out the new DDR5 and welcoming it as the next generation of AMD CPUs, Zen 4, which is expected to release in the second half of 2022.
